Salty Chicken Doesn't Fly: New Survey Reveals Shoppers Feel Deceived By 'Natural' Labeling of Saltwater-Injected Poultry

Foster Farms maintains commitment to 100% Natural and launches new consumer awareness campaign exploring economic and health impact of 'plumped' chicken

LIVINGSTON, Calif., May 11 /PRNewswire/ -- Amidst an increasing national focus on sodium as a critical health issue, West Coast poultry producer Foster Farms today launches a comprehensive consumer campaign to raise awareness of saltwater-injected or "plumped" chicken.

"At a time when consumers are paying attention to their health and their budget, this deserves attention. Many poultry brands contend that injected poultry yields juicier, more flavorful meat, but our survey demonstrates consumers want to know what they're paying for. Foster Farms' 100% Natural, fresh chicken line is never plumped."
